emerging… in composure HA!

I spent this past month of August 2015, participating in a challenge on Instagram.

Surfing the pix and posts of other Instagram-ers… I came upon the #30daysofcomposition challenge presented by

Emma Davies Photography:::Photography for Bloggers website:  http://www.PhotographyForBlogs.com (check out her site for an upcoming September course)

I took this as an opportunity to get together a slice of my photography….and what I found was similar to what I found when I recently reorganized my resume…. I have a little something here and now I want to delve deeper into my emergence through composure…literally and metaphorically. Engaging with my photographs through a daily prompt of all the various elements and rules of composition such as leading lines, rule of thirds, framing, triangles, etc, i began to get a bit of a handle on my style and vision. Having more of a feel and appreciation in this regard has added confidence and a better-fitting direction to my Art.

With that, i give thanks to Emma Davies for her initiative with this challenge AND my glorious son for his ever-clear attention to detail and his stellar sense of beauty AND his computer genius.

Also, you can see these same photos and more at my Instagram

And without further ado, i share with you 30 of my photographs.

breathing Novak-style

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

 

up for air

taking it

one breath

at a time

 

do i win

at the

expense

of others

 

is duality

even an

issue

here

 

like Rafa

like Novak

one ball

at a time

 

one foot

in front

of the

other

 

reaching out

and up

and lovingly

forward

 

sweaters

writing

honoring

beauty

 

above all

your eyes

show me

your heart

 

under it all

connecting

the dots

playing the game

 

hold on and

remember

the truth

your truth

 

breathe.

the light

can be so

bright

 

the essence

of our journey

starts and

ends simply

 

breathe.

a day

like today

singing

in the bathroom

 

everybody

woke up

early

today

 

hugging 

me

so 

tight

 

it’s a

 big day

the 

beginning

 

excited!

no…

thrilled

and more

 

the next piece

called you

this week,

a guest list

 

feeling

the future

at your 

feet

 

wagging

your tail

a puppy

romping into life

 

the next

and 

the next

spills forth

 

the sun is up

the moon

still 

here

 

all want

to see

your

next step

 

it is yours

for the

making & 

the taking
